Several reporters on Twitter are saying Wednesday afternoon that former Wisconsin Badgers guard Kobe King has committed to Nebraska.
Wisconsin transfer Kobe King has committed to Nebraska, sources told ESPN. Expected to have two years of eligibility remaining.
Huge pick up for Fred Hoiberg and the Cornhuskers. King was averaging double-figures for the Badgers before he left the team late last month.

King announced his intent to transfer on Jan. 29 on Instagram.
In the post he wrote, “You guys have always supported me through frustrating times, and you guys will forever be [a part] of my family.”
The redshirt-sophomore from La Crosse missed much of his freshman season in 2017-18 with a knee injury, but played 34 games last season and averaged 4.2 points per game.
He may be required to sit out the 2020-21 season, unless granted a waiver by the NCAA.
Wisconsin returns to the court Thursday night at No. 19 Michigan.
